Wholesale Changes Not Coming For Ravens

Posted Oct 29, 2012

While various tweaks may be implemented to improve after the bye, don’t expect big maneuvers.


Don’t expect any drastic positional shake-ups for the Ravens after the bye.

After a week of pondering what changes the Ravens should make after their week off, Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh explained Monday that there won’t be any big maneuvers.

“We’re not making any wholesale changes,” Harbaugh said. “It’s not like we have to switch everything around and make some huge, momentous moves.

“But we’re always trying to look at the best batting order, the best lineup we can put out on the field at any particular time, and getting as many good players involved as we possibly can.”

Harbaugh discussed a litany of possible changes last week, following the 43-13 loss to the Houston Texans. He talked about staying more patient with the run game, utilizing fullback Vonta Leach more and working some new faces into the offensive and defensive lines.

But that doesn't mean all five starters up front are going to be mixed and matched.

"I can just tell you that the whole offensive line is not going to re-ordered on Wednesday," Harbaugh said. "We’re not doing that."

Changes on the lines could include possibly seeing more of tackle/guard Jah Reid, who is back from his calf injury, or rookie center Gino Gradkowski. Bryan Hall and rookie DeAngelo Tyson got a look on the defensive line against the Texans.

After looking at working in those players more during the bye, Harbaugh stood by some potential tweaks to the offense and defense, without divulging too much.

“There’s young guys in the offensive line we want to look at. There’s veteran guys that could help us doing different things,” Harbaugh said. “I just think football’s kind of evolving to where you’ve got to try to get as many players involved as you can.”
